Many organizations spend more than 70% of their IT budget to maintain legacy applications in “read-only” mode, largely due to data retention and compliance requirements. Application Retirement, or Decommissioning, is the process of moving data off of costly and outdated applications to a single, future-proof, and cost-effective repository that provides a secure and regulatory-compliant tool for accessing legacy data.
We use a rigorous process to analyze your application portfolio and identify the best candidates for decommissioning, based on a combination of their value to the business, the savings that can be achieved, and the cost to retire them. The Solution uses Flatirons’ ETL Acceleration Suite to extract data from difficult legacy environments and store it in an accessible and fully compliant central repository. This includes maintaining a full chain-of-custody audit trail of the data as it’s extracted and transformed, and maintaining all security, privacy, retention and other compliance rules in the central repository.
